How many miles can you get from trailer tires before replacing them? Mine are in great condition but I have no idea what to expect from them and when to replace them

From 50 to 10,000 miles or more. I had mine changed from Trail Express to GY Marathon LR D before it left the dealers lot.

After giving it much thought and a little nudge from OldCoot I have decided on some new tires for the RV before our trip. Have decided on the Maxxis 8008 D, tomorrow I'll see if direst tire can order them. I also just ordered the TST TPMS with the flow thru sensors. When the TPMS gets here I'll have the new tires mounted with steel valve stems and balanced with the sensors in place. May have to postpone our departure for several days or so, better than being stranded someplace that we don't want to be. That will mean re-torquing wheel lugs every hundred miles or so for awhile untill they are seated.

I think you made a wise decision. Have fun on the trip!

Put 3/16" Lexan panels in the screen door so we can leave the door open if the ac or heat is on while we're in FL this winter. Fitting the panels in the channels so we don't have any clips to turn, etc.

Lexan was scrap left over from a windshield we made for a Ranger for Osmose 2 yrs ago and that's why the 2 pcs in the bottom. Lowes charged me $70 for enough Plexiglas to fill the bottom. TOWTA is not happy with the 2 pcs in the bottom, but it wasn't worth the $ to me. We'll see how much guff I get this winter as to whether I cut the Plexiglas next Mar when we get back from FL.

Pictures don't really show much other than my reflection.

So to fit the lexan in the channel, it's just wedged in there after being cut slightly larger than the opening? I am trying to avoid more Velcro add that'll attract dirt and my kids curious fingers... Looks great to me
